Learn how to perform first aid.

What useful trick-hack could save my life if I am in danger. Here are few basic first aid techniques.

First aid for burns.


Soak the burn in cool water for at least 5 minutes. The cool water helps reduce swelling by pulling heat away from the burned skin. Treat the burn with a skin care product that protects and heals skin, such as aloe vera cream or an antibiotic ointment. You can wrap a dry gauze bandage loosely around the burn.




First aid for cuts.


1.Stop Bleeding. Apply direct pressure on the cut or wound with a clean cloth, tissue, or piece of gauze until bleeding stops.
2.Clean Cut or Wound. Gently clean with soap and warm water. 
3.Protect the Wound. Apply antibiotic cream to reduce risk of infection and cover with a sterile bandage. 





First aid for poisoning.


If the person starts having convulsions{a sudden, violent, irregular movement of the body}, give convulsion first aid. Keep the person comfortable. The person should be rolled onto the left side, and remain there while getting or waiting for medical help. If the poison has spilled on the person's clothes, remove the clothing and flush the skin with water.


DO NOT:

1.Give an unconscious person anything by mouth.
2.Induce vomiting unless you are told to do so by a doctor. A strong poison that burns on the way down the throat will also do damage on the way back up.
3.Try to neutralize the poison with lemon juice or vinegar, or any other substance, unless you are told to do so by a doctor.




First aid for a stabbed victim or impaled by a sharp object.


It is not wise to pull out an object that has been lodged in your body because it will increase the rate of blood loss. Instead, try to cover the wound and do anything you can to stop the bleeding until you find a medical professional.




Fainting-first aid.


What do you do when someone passes out{faint}?

If someone faints. Position the person on his or her back. If the person is breathing, restore blood flow to the brain by raising the person's legs above heart level — about 12 inches {30 centimeters} — if possible. Loosen belts, collars or other constrictive clothing.

What do you do if you feel faint?

If you or someone else is about to faint. If you know or suspect that you're going to faint, lie down, preferably in a position where your head is low and your legs are raised. This will encourage blood flow to the brain. If it isn't possible to lie down, sit with your head between your knees.







First aid for fracture.


1.Stop any bleeding. Apply pressure to the wound with a sterile bandage, a clean cloth, or a clean piece of clothing.
2.While waiting for medical care, give first aid treatment for shock if the victim has symptoms such as dizziness, weakness, pale and clammy skin, shortness of breath, and increased heart rate. The person should lie quietly with the feet elevated about 12 inches. Cover him or her with a blanket to maintain body warmth.
3.Immobilize the injured area if you will be moving the victim. Do not move them if there is a back or neck injury. Make a splint by folding a piece of cardboard or newspaper or a magazine, then placing it gently under the limb. Carefully tie the splint to the injured area with pieces of cloth.
4.Apply a cold compress or ice in a plastic bag to the injured area. Make sure to place a cloth between the skin and the ice so you don’t damage the skin.
